About the show

IDS Sussex Development Lecture 17/Feb/2011
Terry Cannon speaks on 'Natural hazards, unnatural disasters: why disasters can only be understood in the context of development'.

In the past 30 years, a great shift has taken place in "explaining" disasters: away from the notion that they are "natural" and towards the idea that people are "vulnerable".

But what makes people vulnerable, and is it the same as poverty? This lecture explores these issues, and argues that vulnerability is a consequence of two major issues: failed or bad development, and unsuitable attitudes to risk.
